Another eventful week in the Premiership.
Roy Hodgson buys himself another reprieve courtesy of a Torres back-heel. But Torres has to start contributing more in 90 minutes than he has so far.
One manager who’s fortunes have immediately changed and for the better is Chris Hughton. After having to watch an idiot like Shearer relegate Newcastle and Joe Kinnear nearly die on the job, Hughton didn’t so much mount a salvage job as raise the Titanic.
If I was Chris, I’d tell Barraboy Mike I needed a 2 year contract and an enhanced bonus structure or I walk. As a wise man on the radio said tonight, if Shearer had delivered a promotion and a 5-1 win over the enemy they’d be building golden statues of the bloke all over the city.
Arsenal may have taken their time, but West Ham have got relegation fodder written through them like a stick of rock right now.
Nani’s goal dominated the headlines but it was Vidic who scored a corker that Tottenham couldn’t reply to.
Chelsea shocked no-one by beating Blackburn and anyone else watching Premiership footy this weekend who was still waiting to be shocked will have to keep waiting. Asthe midlands derby was a 0-0 washout.
